Months after a domestic dispute with now ex-husband Chad ‘Ochocinco’ Johnson, which landed the NFL player jobless, single and VH1 choosing to no longer air Ev & Ocho, Evelyn Lozada is picking the pieces of her life back together.
Although she has no contact with Chad, she’s still very close with at least one of his daughters.
Over the past weeks, we’ve noticed the Basketball Wives star publicly tweeting Chad’s oldest daughter Jicyraa and yesterday [Oct. 16] the two continued to bond via the social network.
Evelyn retweeted Jicyraa adding “We love u”, after the teen sent Ev and her daughter Shaniece emojis.
The tweet was later followed by Jicyraa asking “Why, Why. Why” with different emojis including a cry face, an angry face and a sad face, possibly hinting at the demise of her father and Evelyn’s relationship with a response of “Dunno Doo Doo” from Evelyn.
The public conversation didn’t end there as Jicyraa again tweeted saying “crys” with Ev responding, “Hugs u & never lets u go! I’m cloning my next baby after u doo doo! #YouRock.”
Evelyn, Shaniece and Jicyraa became very close while Ev was in a relationship with Chad. The interaction between Evelyn and Chad’s girls was seen during an episode of Iyanla Fix My Life, where the kids were home when the reality star taped an episode which aired shortly after the headbutting incident.
While some may feel Evelyn should cut all ties with anyone associated with Chad, the bond someone builds with a child is something that is very difficult to turn your back on. Evelyn being a mother to Shaniece probably made it easier to fall into the role of stepmom so it’s not surprising that she remains in contact with Jicyraa.
